(30 and counting, add yours?)
This page is devoted to those of you who wish to share your photos of the Copper Country with those who visit this site. If you have a photo or two or three that you would like to share please send electronic copies to me and I will be happy to display them here. If you don't have access to a scanner and would still like to have your photos displayed here just send me a note and we will work it out. It's a good way to get your photos scanned for free and have fun sharing your work with others in the process. Hope to hear from you soon. (Kevin Musser)
|While Dave was stationed at the Calumet Airbase he made friends with a guy who had bought a Kalamazoo Railcar. "We traveled much of the right of ways in Houghton and Keweenaw counties. We were the last to travel the mainline from Calumet to Hancock via the Quincy area. This track was ripped up by mistake in 1987. We have traveled from Houghton to L'Anse, a great run." Dave's travels now take him much further as after his duty at the Airbase he was transfered to Panama when Calumet closed. This is where I first met Dave via email. He has been relocated again, this time to Germany and sent these from there. Dave is also a model railroader but prefers G scale.||The photos of Dave
|Tom relates: "Seeing this week's photo of the Copper
Range Roundhouse, I remembered a photo I took in 1978. I was more of a shutter bug
want-to-be than a rail fan back then. I was walking around the Shop area and stuck the
camera up against the window and took this picture. Now I wish I had taken more."
Tom currently lives in North Carolina and is modeling the DSS&A from Houghton to Calumet between 1906 and 1930.
